If you are not currently a patient at the Miami VA Healthcare System and you wish to become one, you must report to the Admissions and Disposition area located on the first floor. You should bring proof of honorable military service and proof of any medical insurance you may have. Patients are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, except in the case of medical emergencies, which are seen first. You should report between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Following registration, a health care provider will examine you to determine your needs. When necessary, you will be treated and referred for further follow-up.
